Congratulations to Antoine L’Estage and Alan Ockwell for their victory at yesterday’s running of the Rally of the Tall Pines in Bancroft, Ontario. With this win Antoine becomes the first driver in Canadian Rally history to clean-sweep the entire Canadian Championship winning 6 out of 6 National events in 2014! As well this season marks Antoine’s 7th Canadian National Championship (And Alan’s third!), also a record for any driver.
Full results are available at RallyScoring.com
We look forward to see what 2015 brings for everyone in the Canadian Rally Championship!

A message from the organizers:
Wayne Pitts and I (ed. Cindy Spencer) were organizing the first RallyCross event of the year, and with the help/input of some BAC members we have come to a decision regarding the BAC Rally Cross event for November 23rd.
It was not an easy decision to make as we all want to be out on the lot ASAP, however, if we want to preserve the fun all season we are going to have to cancel Rally Cross for November 23rd.
The big lot and the small lot both still have cars in them, and they will not be gone before Sunday. The third lot on the other side of the track near the paddock/pit area that has been investigated for use now has a small lake in it, and the chances of it being dried up, or frozen by Sunday are slim. So to avoid rutting it up and freezing into ruts, ruining future events, we’re cancelling.
Pray to the rally gods for cold weather to freeze up the ground so we can run December 7th at SSW. If the big lot and small lot are still full of cars on December 7th, we will run on the (even) smaller third lot.

So we’re keeping an eye on the situation for next Sunday. Right now the big lot is 100% occupied by vehicles from the next door Auction dealer and its possible the small lot may be similarly occupied as well. Obviously if this is the case we’re stuck and obviously can’t have the event.
The other issue is weather. After last year we learned our lesson about running events at Scotia if its been too wet. Even if the lot is free we’ll be evaluating through next week to determine whether or not the lot will be suitable to run without damage. Stay tuned here, on the ARMS Forum or on the RallyEast Facebook group for updates!

Interested in getting a taste of rally driving?
Perhaps you’re an AutoSlalom junkie looking for a cone-dodging fix during the long winter months? Or maybe just interested in some hands on driving experience in slippery, less than ideal conditions, to better prepare you for our soon to be slippery winter streets? Then participating in a BAC RallyCross event would be just right for you!
RallyCross is an off-road AutoSlalom event. A number of times between November and March we will haul out the cones and timing equipment at the Scotia Speed World spectator parking lot and or the AMP (back 40 as it known locally) parking lot to rip it up against the clock in the mud, snow, gravel and what ever mother nature throws at us. Whether you have a Stunning STI or a Rusted-out Rabbit, come out to an event and give it a try!
We are pleased to announce that the BAC RallyCross Challenge will be held again this year. We are hoping to continue on the fun and success of the last few years.
